Let's update this old chestnut... These are the times that try people's (oh screw political correctness) men's souls.... In all seriousness, I just wanted to start a thread for those of us who are feeling the pinch of the economy going down. There are those who felt it a while back..and there are others who are just begiining to feel it. I was recently laid off...and while I think there might be a point when I will be rehired. It's good to know there is a place out there to exchange ideas and at least offer an ear.
